The Benefits of Modern Plumbing.
One of the most generally
approved ideas of modern
plumbing is thauof installing
one-piece lavatories supplied with hot and
cold running water in the sleeping apart

The benefits derived from this arrange
ment will not only be found necessary to
modern living, but also prove a source of
convenience and comfort to the occupants.

the eyes, constipation, bed-wetting, fickle appetite, fits and convulsions,
restlessness at night, feverishness, grinding the teeth, foul breath, etc.j

Your "German fried" will cost more
than usual this winter, according to rt -lorts
that come from the northern dis
tricts where much of the potato crop
supplying this part of the west i.s
grown. Even in good seasons this vi
cinity is not able to subsist on the lub
bers grown near here and this year
late potatoes will be a poor crop. Now
from the north come "bear" reports of
rot through Iowa and Wisconsin, due
to the unusually wet weather of the
present month. In the extreme north
the crop is said to be unaffected, hm
by the time the tubers are fchipped
from, there the freight charges will

minds of any that dandruff germs do

the fact that a rabitit inoculated wltii
the germs b-canie bald in hix weeks'

son therefore that the only prevention
of baldness is the destruction of the
germ which act is successfully ac
complished in 100 per cent of cases by
